CUTE-AS CUBBY HOUSE

Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

Emily Jade is quite proud of the DIY job she, Ger­ard and her cousin did on the lit­tle cubby house. Orig­i­nally a gar­den shed, it had been turned into a chil­dren’s play house by the for­mer home­own­ers. “It’s ac­tu­ally the only orig­i­nal part of the pre­vi­ous con­struc­tion that we didn’t knock down,” says Emily Jade. They re­lo­cated the lit­tle build­ing to an­other cor­ner of the block, put a new roof on it, cov­ered the floor in black and white tiles and gave it all a fresh coat of paint. Now it’s a much-used play space by Mil­lie and her guests – or, says Emily Jade, the “dog box!”
